Wally was so welcoming and accommodating that we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The food, the service, the atmosphere were stellar. A beautiful, romantic evening for a parents' night out!

I was with a group of four at the Marina Cafe in mid April and had another very good experience for dinner. The menu selections are excellent, the food is very good and the view of the famous Destin harbor is fabulous. It is a bit upscale which is a nice change from all the very casual dining places in...

We hosted our granddaughter, husband and two small girls for dinner. We have been going to this restaurant for at least 15 years and it retains its quality on every level. Our Server was "Shannon". She is one of the best waiters I have experienced. As I told her on departure..."Very Professional". All meals were very good and the children's... More

Came here due to TripAdvisor's ranking. And it made sense! A little difficult to get table, but once seated, we were served the most delicious food. Even the pizza was out of the ordinary. So we came back, night after night.

When we decided to go here my husband did not have high expectations because of the name with "cafe". We were in for a great surprise......the food is awesome and the service was great!!! My husband had the steak and I had the grouper.....Definitely will go again.

This place was recommended to us by friends who told us about the 1 entree free when 1 is purchased between 5:00 and 6:00. My husband and I both had the grouper entree. It was exceptional with the celery root puree. My husband had a Bloody Mary which he said was great and I had a cosmopolitain which was excellent... More

You are always guaranteed to enjoy sumptuous fresh fish, amazing views of the harbor and sunset and attentive service. The early bird special is best in Destin. One of our favorite dining experiences for every trip to Destin area. Wally, the maître'd, ensures your happiness.

Not great. Not terrible but just not exciting or memorable and definetly not affordable. Standard sushi in my oppinion but at an above average price. May try that new Jacakudas place on the harbor next sushi craving.

I have been eating sushi here for years and just love it. I will say that the 5-7pm half off sushi in the bar area is a great deal. The only problem you will run into is that the service in the lounge and bar area is inconsistent. One night you will get great service, and the next it will... More
